A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Tuesday: "Honor the mothers"

(Reference: Song 2:8-14; Luke 1:39-45)

How easy it is to miss the reality that Elizabeth, the aged mother-to-be of John the Baptist, is the first person in the Gospels to be described as “filled with the Holy Spirit.” Overcome with joy at her young relative’s pregnancy, Elizabeth shouts her praise of holy Mary and the blessed boy in her womb.

How might you, in memory of Mary and Elizabeth, honor a pregnant woman or an overworked mother?
